'iPhone 15' appearance review, I tried to see how it has changed from the previous model, such as the long-awaited USB-C installed

I got the 'iPhone 15' released on September 22, 2023, so I first thoroughly checked the appearance. Since the previous model iPhone 14 has changed in various ways, such as the inclusion of

Dynamic Island and the change to USB-C, we also prepared the iPhone 14 and compared its appearance first.

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus - Apple (Japan)

◆iPhone 15 appearance review
The iPhone 15 package looks like this.

Peel off the tape on the back and open the package.

When opening the inside, the iPhone 15 body appeared. The color I purchased this time is 'pink'.

Other contents include a manual, Apple logo sticker, SIM pin, and USB-C to USB-C cable.

The iPhone 15 body looks like this.

The size is 147.6mm long x 71.6mm wide x 7.80mm thin. The display size is 6.1 inches.

The actual weight is 169g. The nominal value is 171g.

It looks like this when you hold it in your hand.

The main camera on the back is a dual camera.

The top left is the 48MP main wide-angle camera, and the bottom right is the 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera.

There is nothing special on the top.

A microphone, speaker, and USB-C connector are located on the bottom.

On the left side, there is a call/mute button, volume up/down button, and SIM card slot.

There is a side button on the right side.

◆Compared the appearance of iPhone 15 and iPhone 14
Next, let's compare it with the previous model, the iPhone 14. From now on, unless otherwise noted, the iPhone 15 will be placed on the left and the iPhone 14 on the right.

The iPhone 15 is about 0.9mm taller.

The thickness remains unchanged at approximately 10.1mm for both.

The actual weight of iPhone 14 is 170g. Nominal value is 172g.

Comparing the back side, it looks like this.

The iPhone 14 used regular glass, but the iPhone 15 uses color-infused glass. Fingerprints were noticeable on the back of the iPhone 14, but the color infused glass of the iPhone 15 has a smooth matte texture that makes it difficult to get fingerprints.

There is no difference in the appearance of the camera, but the iPhone 14's main camera is a 12MP wide-angle, while the iPhone 15's is a 48MP wide-angle.

There is no visible difference between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 14 on the top. Above is iPhone 15.

The bottom looks like this. The Lightning connector on the iPhone 14 has been changed to a USB-C connector on the iPhone 15.

There are no changes to the right side.

The same goes for the left side.

Looking at the screen, the iPhone 15 has a Dynamic Island at the top, while the iPhone 14 has a traditional notch at the top of the screen.

I measured the bezel width of the display. The bezel width of iPhone 14 is approximately 2.5mm.

On the other hand, the bezel width of the iPhone 15 is approximately 2.0 mm, which shows that the bezel width of the iPhone 15 is slightly narrower.

So, I checked the differences in appearance between iPhone 15 and iPhone 14. Next time, we'll be comparing benchmarks and camera performance between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 14, so stay tuned.
